Summer is finally settling in our beloved city, Berlin. Things seem to be coming back to normal, and the sweet chill summer vibes are here. People are chilling in the parks, having drinks on terraces, picnics and heading to the countless lakes surrounding us.
This month, I was very fortunate, Tom Hemps spoiled me with their new beauty products, and I must admit I am a sucker for beauty goods. However, when it comes to choosing products I will use on my skin, I am a tedious prick. I’ve got olive skin, and as a result, it’s scorched on my body but on my face it’s a combination of dry and oily. I also try as much as possible to use clean beauty products. Therefore, I have a list of standards my products must meet for me to be content. For my body, I need a good moisturizer, but it needs to absorb immediately into the skin and to relieve it from any tightness or dryness. Ideally, it should be lightweight and have a gentle flowery scent. To my pleasant surprise when I tried the body lotion, it checked all my boxes: it gave a powerful punch of deep moisturizing and hydration, and my skin felt supple and soft to the touch. After which, I checked the ingredients and recognized some of my prefered components: Cannabis Sativa Oil, Cannabidiol, Shea Butter, Aloe leaf juice and Monoï oil. Each time I smell Monoï oil, it propels me to the long summers I spent by the sea when I was younger. After a long day at the beach, I would submerge myself in the oil from head to toe. Needless to say, Aloe vera is also perfect for relieving sun-kissed skin, and of course, Sativa and cannabidiol are potent anti-ageing and relaxing ingredients.
Then, I couldn’t help myself to try the ylang-ylang oil as this is my preferred scent. Ylang-ylang oil is wonderfully fragrant, with a soft, subtle fruity floral fragrance. I asked my boyfriend to spread the oil on my back while giving me a back rub as this is a zone I rarely can reach to hydrate. Apparently, the oil was absorbed very quickly and left my skin, looking radiant. The next morning I used the orange body oil as I always feel like citrus wakes you up and energizes you. And last but certainly not least, I used the day cream right after washing my face, and it felt exactly how I like it to be! It is super light and absorbs very quickly, leaving your face hydrated and super soft. The combination of the Hemp Seed Oil and the Monoï oil is really very powerful. It combats extreme dryness, rashes, sores, purifies the skin with clogged pores or prone to blackheads and CBD also contains GLA, or gamma-linolenic acid, which is a very nutritious form of omega-6 fatty acid.
Being a person who is very cautious about what she puts in and on her body, I can heartily recommend these products. They are perfect for your moments of self-care, you can also use the oils in your bath or hair, and they will make you feel relaxed, hydrated, fresh and smelling good.
Take care of yourself peep!
